The "Bus's" Motor Is Still Running In His Mouth!

Jerome Bettis, "the Bus" may be out of football, but he's still making headlines. Since leaving the Pittsbugh Steelers after winning Super Bowl XL, "the Bus" has predicted that the Steelers won't do very well this season and that Steelers head coach, Bill Cowher will retire after the 2006 season, even though he has a contract until the end of the 2007 season. Bill Cowher wasn't too happy with Jerome's comments and neither are the fans. We all know that sooner or later Cowher will retire, but what good does it do to bring that up now. The Steelers are preparing to defend their championship (a championship that Bettis had a lot to do with) and it doesn't show much class for him to stir up controversy before the season even gets started. I believe in free speach and he has every right to say it, but he needs to use better judgement. Get the rest of the story. That's Pittsburgh steelers news.

Here we Go steelers, Here We Go!

The Pittsburgh Steelers are back in training camp and getting ready to make a run at repeating as Super Bowl champs. After quarterback Ben Roethlisberger stunned the Steeler nation with a near fatal motorcycle accident and their #1 draft choice, Santonio Holmes was arrested twice before signing with the Steelers and "the Bus" is parked for good, we can only hope that they still have what it takes to win "the Big One". Joey Porter came into camp nursing a sore knee after undergoing surgery. Hines Ward, Super Bowl XL MVP, is working with rookie, Santonio Holmes to bring him up to speed on what's expected when you're a Pittsburgh Steeler. (I hope it takes!) Santonio has a court date in two weeks that could affect the start of the season. The running chores are Willie Parker's to lose and Deuce Staley and Veron Haynes will have to fight it out to see who will replace Jerome Bettis on short yardage situations. There has been some talk as to how long coach Bill Cowher will stay with the Steelers before he retires to his home in North Carolina. Here are some mini videos from this years training camp at St. Vincent college in Latrobe PA you can watch. That's Pittsburgh Steelers news.
